Breton Stripes

How cute is this picture that popped up on J.Crew's Instagram feed a couple of days ago?  Saint James is the premier purveyor of the Breton Stripe t-shirt.  The history of this widely loved shirt is so interesting.  I wrote about it in a previous post.  Click here to read.



Nautical stripes=summer which is right around the corner,

Art on Instagram...August Wren

My current black hole is Instagram.  It used to be Facebook, then the blogs, Twitter and now Instagram.  It doesn't take long to get sucked into the search page and find someones post that leads to another and then an hour has gone by.  One that I found not too long ago and has become a favorite is August Wren.  Artist Jennifer Orkin Lewis is behind the August Wren art, posting one sketch a day.  Each is better than the next. 








Her sketchbook...






She has a website here where you can shop for prints and find out more about her.

Loving August Wren,

The Aviator Club

Sunglasses...the accessory that you need every day.  I can't seem to keep my hands on a pair for very long.  The ones I have now I have owned for about 4 years which is a serious record.  


They are so scratched that I started looking months ago for my next pair, but can't seem to make up my mind.  Since it seems everyone on earth wears Ray-Ban Aviators, I thought maybe a good option.  But..when I tried them on, they don't look as good as on Jennifer Anniston or Katie Holmes-obviously.  When I was on Nantucket last Labor Day weekend, I couldn't believe that almost everyone that I walked past was wearing them.  Did I miss the memo?








Then I saw these and they might be the ones...a slightly different version of the Aviators, the Cockpit style.  


So, I get my heart set on these and of course, they are a little hard to find...but I am on a mission.  This spring break, I am determined not to be so pale, so these are a must.

Sitting in the sun,
